Eliot Cohen, professor of strategic studies at Johns Hopkins University and a former George W. Bush administration official, said, “It’s the only thing we can talk about.” That’s all we talk about. US foreign policy guys, that’s all we talk about, is Trump.
“He’s answered the second question by spearheading an anti-Trump petition, which now has signatures of 121 GOP national security experts,” who are pledging they will not work in a Trump administration. “Others are not sure how they would respond to a call from Trump. ‘Leaving any particular president completely alone and bereft from the best advice people could give him just doesn’t sound responsible,’ said another former senior Republican official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.”
Rush Limbaugh comments, So one guy here is saying essentially, “Look, Trump’s not gonna know diddly-squat. It would be irresponsible of us, the gurus, who have all the answers, not to help him out.” I love the assumption that these guys are the gurus. They have all the answers and it would be silly not to help Trump out because he doesn’t know anything. Now, I don’t know how any of these quotes justify the Washington Post headline, but what do they care? I mean, the headline is what they want people to see: “GOP Foreign Policy Elites Do Not Know Whether They Will Serve if Trump is President.”
